Now in its fourth year, Martha Stewart's American Made Summit, happening in New York City on November 7th, 2015 at her OMNI Media Headquarters, looks like another reason to travel to the Empire State this fall. Tickets for the event are now on sale, with a lineup and sponsors that promise to make it one to remember.
The event is packed to the brim in what is being called "the ultimate day of panels and talks." The talks will cover topics ranging from "How to Build a Successful Brand," to, "Financing and Growing your Small Business," and "Using Social Media to Drive Awareness and Sales."
During the event, participating show-goers will learn and interact directly with Martha Stewart in addition to "some of the nation's most influential innovators, industry icons, and successful entrepreneurs, and will network with other makers from across the country who are reinvigorating their cities, towns, and the American Economy," according to a press release.
Along with the talks and panels, there will also be the 2015 American Made Award Honorees and Audience Choice Winner announcements and celebrations. Martha will join the selected winners and honorees on stage to talk about their businesses and successful endeavors.
Included in the purchase price of the event, which is $300 for a full-day pass, is access to all panels and talks, and sustenance in the form of breakfast and lunch. Paying attendees will also receive an official "Martha's Map of NYC," a location reference of Mrs. Stewart's favorite destinations to nosh, learn, and of course, shop. If that isn't enough, the map also includes exclusive offers redeemable the weekend of the Summit.
At the end of the day, attendees and editors will gather for a cocktail party, "featuring a selection of locally made food and beverages," and after seeing what New York City had to offer during the Specialty Food Show earlier this summer, we're sure that the party will be nothing to snicker at.
The speaker line-up, along with Martha Stewart, includes:
